When I was 14 I followed my dad to the gym.

GUMSE:I always eat clean but with more carbs during the offseason.

ZONE:And what about your training. Offseason & before a show?
GUMSE:I always train the same..always hard!

ZONE:Where do you think most people go wrong before a show?
GUMSE:People listening to others...
I always think that I cant change the other competitors shape..only my own.

ZONE:You got some crazy looking freaky shoulders that I personaly
could kill to get! How do you train èm?
GUMSE:Basics...I always use the basics on all my muscle groups.
On shoulders I like presses with barbells...
both behind the neck & to the front.
But really..compared to my dad my shoulders are small!! LOL!

Im always eager to compete but this year Im going to train on my weakest
musclegroups to be more complete...
Ive been doing 19 shows now & 13 was during the last 2 years
so its about time for a brake.
